Third Graders Scream For Ice Cream

RAHWAY — I scream….you scream….we all scream for…..We all know how the age-old songs goes. But, do we know how students would react to making their very own ice cream? The answer? Scream, of course!

Third grade students from Ms. Cianchetta and Mrs. Lopez’s classes at Franklin School in Rahway can prove it. Earlier this month, the students read a story about two girls from very different parts of the world: Santo Domingo and Maine. Despite their differences, the girls shared a love of chocolate ice cream.


“Ice Cream in a Baggie” was introduced as a cross-curricular activity, infusing science with the district’s reading curriculum. With just a few simple ingredients, a little mess, and a lot of shaking, students were amazed as sugar and half-n-half turned to ice-cream right before their very eyes. The process by which salt and ice aid the freezing process was discussed and researched in class. The group even experimented to see what would happen if the salt was eliminated from the procedure.
